Runway Inspired Challenge #7

For my birthday our dear Miss Anna, who watches my kids while I am out saving lives and stamping out disease ;), gave me a beautiful scarf. This beautiful scarf was inside a beautiful bag and along with it came a beautiful card. All these things I had planned on loving, cherishing, and keeping forever.

Until I saw RIC this week.

Look at the bag, look at the card. Look at the bag. Look at my scissors.

I tried not to, I scoped all my stuff, but I couldn't help it. It seemed like the perfect fit.

Here is what is left of the bag. I had to take the pic flat cuz I already dissected it for the card(s) and it could no longer stand poor thing.

I had so much fun that I just kept making card after card. This is not in my usual style, but I went with it. The outfit had an elegance to it, but somehow also looked a bit like the circus??? Also I felt like dressing it up a bit since the lady had a necklace on. 

Here we go:

This is the only card in this COLLECTION I am entering for the challenge.  That sounds very runway doesn't it?

I am going  to give Miss Anna the cards as a token of my appreciation. And I hope it will lessen the blow on cutting up her pretty bag. I probably will make more cards for this challenge. Had one in mind and can't seem to get the execution right. Be back once I figure out the kinks!

Later, I hope
